  • Tiny House Series: Pt. 1 Exterior

    This looks like a great idea. I have seen some built before which were similar. I love all ideas. I might build one some day. Weighting for step one and two before I make my final comment. Like I said I have seen similar before and I guess I will find the best ideas to put into mine. Thank you to the designer for sharing his idea with everyone.

    I have ideas to cut the weight down noticeably and be just as strong of construction if not stronger.

    Where I live here in Oregon? The code says anything under 200 sq ft and is moveable ( skids/trailer ) is none taxable nor do you need a permit to build. They have little communities popping up all over with these tiny homes because of cost ( taxes/ moveability ). Some people build two and set side by side. All legal. One is to live in and one is for storage, staples and etc. If on wheels and under 200 SQ FT, I believe all you have to get is a license for a utility trailer. There should be somewhere people can post pictures if they build one. Have a contest for the best all around one. Let the readers decide.

    These are smaller than an RV alternative. I do not know if there is the same issue with these on placement. Even though the RV alternative is classified as a travel trailer if you put them in an RV Park, the laws are vague. Some classify them as RV's and some as mini mobile homes . Some laws and simple and easy and some are hard and make things difficult. It would be really great to have a 4th part with some of the general rules, laws and etc. Put in a disclaimer that these are just ideas and guidelines and you are not responsible. If I had the resources I would write a complimentary Instructable with these items. Anything to help the Tiny House.
